Riichiro Inagaki may have written the popular Dr. Stone, but Boichi gets all the credit due to his fantastic art style that made fans fall in love with the manga.
The series ended in March 2022 with a satisfying and rather intriguing end (I won’t spoil it). Additionally, fans received it with mixed feelings as some were happy about the conclusion, while others still yearn for a satisfying closure.
Unfortunately, this news is not about a much-expected alternate ending but rather a whole new story.
Boichi and Korean writer In-Wan Youn have announced a new webtoon for 2023, which will be released on the LINE manga app.
The story will follow a young man who fights alone to protect his family. It sounds like a typical shonen, but knowing Boichi, I know it will at least have spectacular visuals.
Also, the webtoon will feature heroes from various dimensions who arrive on Earth to fight in a war. The production collaborates with YLAB and will pick up multiple characters from it as the heroes from different dimensions.
Moreover, In-Wan Youn is the brains behind the popular Shin Angyo Onshi (Blade of the Phantom Master) series. The epic thriller fantasy has won the hearts of many and continues to do so.
To put it simply, think of it as a massive YLAB crossover in a Boichi webtoon. Now that sounds like a thrilling story I can vouch for.
